have you considered a "wrench" meet?

Has anyone ever considered having a "wrench" meet? Basically people get together to help with installs, eat, and just get to know each other. My work schedule sucks so I have never been to one, but hopefully someday soon that will change.

I'm also not a slave to any brand/model of car. I just like the opportunity to help where needed.

My old car club would do this a lot. We called them "garage days" but same thing; everybody working on the cars, together and separate. Its nice to hang out, have a couple drinks and work on the latest projects.

I'd be down for a meet like this. Keep the thread updated I'll definitely come out.

Oh, and my garage is open to anybody that wants to help

Yeah I enjoy wrenching meets too. When I pay someone to do the job (which happens quite a bit because of time constraints) I am not learning. I also could have used that same amount of cash to buy new tools. $100 for labor vs. $100 to learn something, and have a new spring compressor! (just an example )
